At Alice Family Eye Center, our goal is promote good eye health and enable you to have the clearest vision possible. We accept several types of vision insurance, cash, checks, and most credit cards. We inform our ALICE patients about exam and treatment costs at the beginning of your appointment. If you require a breakdown of costs, please let us know.

NEW - BEGINNING SUMMER 2021 - We are now open access providers for most insurance plans.  This means you can still come to our office for eye exams and eyewear even if we are NOT listed as providers for your insurance.  This gives you more freedom, more choice, bigger selection, and you choose the doctor you want to see rather than one you are forced to see.  You simply come for your visit and pay for your services and materials, and we do the rest.  In a few weeks you will get a check from your insurance provider.  Plus we are able to tell you what reimbursement will be at your visit.

Vision Insurance

The knowledgeable staff at Alice Family Eye Center is experienced in working with vision insurance providers. We will work directly with you and your vision insurer to submit claims regarding your vision care. We strive to ensure that you understand your insurance coverage and will answer any questions you may have regarding your benefits. Many current vision plans are designed to cover many of the basic vision-related costs, but not all costs associated with eye care. Most plans often require a co-payment for an office appointment as well as additional costs that are covered by the insured patient.

Contact our office at (361) 668-3937 to find out if your insurance provider is accepted in our office or for more information about your vision coverage.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Many employers are offering Flexible Spending Account (FSA) options to employees. Sometimes these are referred to as cafeteria plans and are elective, supplemental insurance savings plans. These plans are designed to let you save money in an account, pre-tax, to pay for additional medical expenses such as eye exams, glasses, contacts, and often laser vision surgery. Check with the benefits administrator at your work to see if you are eligible for this program. FSAs can typically be used in conjunction with any vision insurance plan to offset any out-of-pocket costs on your behalf.

Other Payment Options

Our ALICE optometry staff understands that cost is a concern when evaluating vision care providers. We do not want cost to be an obstacle to maintaining proper eye health and good vision. We accept various forms of payment and are able to discuss financing options with you prior to any examination. At Alice Family Eye Center, we also accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Call (361) 668-3937 today to schedule your eye exam today.
